Volunteers will dig deep for Police Creek leaving legacy

PLANTING a tree is a legacy.

Friends of Police Creek volunteer Sarah Nicholson says planting a tree is a way of outliving yourself.

"It's a way to continue living long after you are dead," she said.

"When you plant a tree, you plant a future."

Four tree-planting events are scheduled during May to create an enduring change to Police Creek.

Fitzroy Basin Association CEO Paul Birch is calling on individuals and families to learn more about Police Creek and its importance.

"Many people drive past Police Creek on a daily basis but may not realise its value as an urban corridor and haven for waterbirds, reptiles, fish and other native wildlife," he said.

"Make 2014 your year to give back to your local environment."

The rendezvous point for the first two tree-planting events on Sunday and May 10 will be at the creek near Golf Course Rd.

The following two events on May 18 and May 25 will be held on Southern Cross Cl.

Volunteers should bring closed-in shoes, sunscreen, gloves and a water bottle.
